Twitter hires crypto engineers
Jack Dorsey, the CEO of Twitter is one of Bitcoin’s strong advocates. He is also the boss of Square, specializing in payment systems. It is precisely on behalf of this company that he hires engineers to work on improving the Bitcoin ecosystem. And he is willing to pay for it in … Bitcoin.
Jack Dorsey is passionate about finance and cryptocurrency. The boss of Twitter is not content with the social network of which he is the co-founder and also created the company Square, which processes mobile payment solutions. She is also specialized in cryptocurrency trading via her Cash App.
The company has just announced that Bitcoin sales have generated $ 116 million in 2018. This represents less than 5% of the $ 3 billion in revenue earned in 2018, but the CEO of Square and Twitter wants to agree to efforts to improve the ecosystem of cryptocurrency.
Twitter boss seeks 4 engineers to support Bitcoin
“#BitcoinTwitter and #CryptoTwitter! Square hires 3 to 4 crypto engineers and 1 designer to work full time on open source contributions to the bitcoin / crypto ecosystem. Work from anywhere, send me your reports directly, and we can even pay you in Bitcoin! ”
That’s what we read in a message posted on Twitter by Jack Dorsey. In other tweets, he explains that this is one of the most significant contributions he could make to the Bitcoin community. His intention is to make the ecosystem better. And as he points out, this first Open Source initiative of Square parallels the company’s activities. This is to say that it is not lucrative. New employees will focus entirely on improving the cryptocurrency ecosystem.
